Audio-Technica has announced the launch of their new 3000 Series Wireless In-Ear Monitor System, which they say is designed to bring professional sound quality and features to all levels of performers and performance venues.
Gary Boss, Audio-Technica U.S. Marketing Director, told us, "The system and feature set were developed based on market surveys and customer feedback gathered over a number of years. We can confidently say that the feature-rich 3000 Series Wireless In-Ear Monitor System continues to deliver Audio-Technica's promise of making high-quality, dependable audio accessible to all."
Here's more details in A-T's own words...
Designed for use by musicians, system integrators, HOW technical personnel and owners of live-performance venues, the ATW-3255 3000 Series Wireless In-Ear Monitor System is an exceptional performer in both value and in operation. The durable in-ear monitor system is easy to use and, crucially, delivers high-quality sound with dependable RF across more than three times the tuning bandwidth of competitive models in its price range.
With design elements modeled after A-T's acclaimed 3000 Series UHF Wireless Microphone Systems, the 3000 Series IEM system features a rack-mount transmitter with front-panel controls and large OLED display, compact body-pack receiver and ATH-E40 professional in-ear monitor headphones. The body-pack receiver's efficient headphone amp and ATH-E40 headphone's proprietary dual-phase push-pull drivers combine to provide clear, natural sound quality on any stage.
The 3000 Series Wireless IEM offers exceptionally wide-band UHF coverage for maximum versatility in the increasingly congested RF environment with 138 MHz of tuning range spanning 470 – 608 MHz in frequency band DF2. Its diversity antennas ensure stable reception even in the most crowded RF environments. Additional features include pan/personal mix controls; a cue mode that allows an audio engineer to monitor several IEM channels from a single receiver; a 3000 Link mode that enables compatibility with 3000 Series wireless microphone components; and network monitoring and control via the Audio-Technica Wireless Manager software.
Both the transmitter and receiver include OLED screens for optimal readout of key settings and alerts especially in low lighting situations. The body-pack receiver operates continuously for up to seven hours when powered by NiMH batteries and charged in the optional ATW-CHG3 or ATW-CHG3N charging stations – for compatibility and convenience these are the same chargers used by 3000 Series microphone systems' UHF body-pack transmitters. The transmitter is equipped with balanced XLR inputs and loop output, plus network port.
